10 - 14 yearsRegistration required, Drop-off

Our Christmas break prep school fundamentals program starts at the beginning to help students decipher the confusing world of cooking. Based on our popular adult program, this 4-day camp, for kids aged 10 - 14 is designed to expand your skills in the kitchen with a trained instructor at your disposal.

This program is designed for students who want to start from scratch. Beginners in the kitchen will learn the basics and come away with confidence to cook independently. Those with some experience will broaden their culinary knowledge, hone their skills and acquire valuable tips and insight so they can take their culinary adventures to a new level.

What Will I Learn?

  • professional knife-handling techniques;
  • how to select and cook meat, fish and vegetables;
  • how to saute, simmer, grill, roast, braise and pan fry;
  • proper use of cookware and essential kitchen tools;
  • recipes and methods for soups, stocks, sauces, appetizers, entrees, salads and more;
  • use of herbs and spices, understanding basic flavours and complex flavour profiles;
  • menu and time planning;
  • tricks of the trade from seasoned professionals.

Each 3 hour session combines the instructor's lecture and demonstration with individual hands-on execution of recipes that feature essential techniques in modern cooking. You and your fellow cooking comrades will enjoy a meal and have a chance to engage in an informal discussion on techniques and culinary topics.
